The Game is no stranger to a ripped-from-the-headlines approach for songs. From his earliest days as a breakout star with The Documentary more than a decade ago, he became known for his affinity for name-drops. That approach often continues today, but not just for witty punch lines.
He was at it again on Thursday, debuting "Let Me Know," featuring Jeremih, during sitting down with Big Boy at Los Angeles's Real 92.3. On the track, he addresses a handful of stories that have been dominating the news cycle in recent weeks:
"Where the body cams at when they killed Sandra Bland, though? / Where's the justice system at when the cops go Rambo / Black lives matter when we talkin' 'bout Philando / But all lives matter when we talkin' 'bout Orlando / Forty-nine dead bodies, 83 in France, though / They say Alton had a gun, we ain't see it in his hands, though / We screaming, 'Fuck the police,' but what about Dallas? / All these murders on the news, every week it's another one, DJ Khaled"
In addition to the song, which starts at about the 4:15 mark in the video below and is only a preview of the above full version, he also gives an interview discussing his meeting with L.A. police chief Charlie Beck, fatherhood, and more.
